ROCKBRIDGE, Va. (AP) — Virginia's first community solar project will provide energy for more than 200 homes and businesses in the western part of the state.

Gov. Terry McAuliffe's office says the solar project at the BARC Electric facility allows homes and businesses in different communities to get solar power generated electricity from one place instead of putting panels on their own rooftops.

Officials say the project will provide 25 percent of the energy needs for homes and businesses across BARC's electric system in in Rockbridge, Bath, Highland, Augusta and Alleghany counties.

Customers who subscribe to the solar project will pay a fixed solar energy rate for 20 years.
